Episode 7: Upper and Outsole Cementing of ROBOshoe
This is the second automated cell of the manufacturing system. A manipulation robot retrieves the shoe at its exit from the heat setter and places it into the automatic bottom cementing machine; similarly it fetches for the appropriate outsole delivered by the smart warehouse to hand it to the outsole cementing machine; eventually both the outsole and the shoe are transferred to the dryer/reactivator. The robot cell is equipped with a fenceless, activate Laserscan safety system.
